ER: Recover Documents per connection


#1

TOAD sometimes crashes. When it does it allows us to recover files that were open when it crashed. When I recover these files it opens them all in a single SE window. I then have to go through copy and pasting them into separate SE windows for each connection that was open (and trying to remember which applied to which). Could TOAD remember the connection that had the script open and “recover” it in that connection, or at least group them accordingly?

Or if we could drag tabs between connections/SE windows, that would be really good with an option asking if we’d like to move or copy it?

Morning Richard,

I then have to go through copy and pasting them into
separate SE windows for each connection that was open (and
trying to remember which applied to which).

This might help.

When you recover all the broken MOE files that were open when Toad
crashed, they are not attached to any connections. Once you open a
connection to an appropriate database again, you do not have to cut and
paste. What you should do is click on the “change connection” button
when you have focus in the editor that holds the recovered file.

The button looks like a wire with a (US style?) electric plug on the end
and a drop down arrow. (on my 10g Toad it’s the first button on the
STANDARD toolbar.)

Click the drop down, select the connection and the editor window is now
associated with that connection.

Cheers,
Norm. [TeamT]

Hi Richard,

Yes, this is definitely a good ER. The idea has come up in the past, and I said
then that I could include the database name in the backup file metadata and so
try to open the file in a MOE with that connection. I obviously haven’t
gotten to it yet, but I will for the fall release.
